Changing lives and creating healthy homes

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we are unable to accept more donated items at this time.

As we rely on your support for the success of our programs, we hope you will consider donating in the future, or making a financial contribution today. Your donations help us create a safe, comfortable community for women experiencing homelessness across Los Angeles.

Please check back for updates and to schedule a donation drop-off at a later date. We will not accept unscheduled donation drop-offs.


If you are interested in running a holiday drive or promotion to benefit the Downtown Women’s Center, please contact


For the health and safety of our community, DWC is limiting donations to:

  • Gift cards to DTLA stores like Food 4 Less, CVS, Ralph’s, and Target, which allow women overcoming homelessness to shop for the items they need most. Gift cards in $15 or $20 amounts will enhance the gift baskets we’re prepared to distribute for the holidays.
  • Items on our Amazon Wish List, which most accurately reflects the current needs of the women we serve.
  • Help from Home Kits (please see our guidelines for building Snack Packs, Toiletry Kits, and Clean Home Kits to help support our community).

Items can be shipped directly to: 
Downtown Women’s Center
Attn: Development
442 S. San Pedro Street
Los Angeles, CA 90013
